The scan requests are the system (the airportd dameon) scanning for available WiFi networks. In reviewing the log, it seems to do it in earnest for a minute, then slow down for several minutes, then pick back up. I'm not sure why it is doing it so often, but as long as your battery life does not seem to be suffering and the system is not slowing during these ...

My go to for all things Mac accessories is Other World Computing. I can't speak to compatibility, Handoff, or anything of the sort, but their site lists one USB 802.11ac adapter, ... and an AirPort Extreme / Time Capsule Mount. Neat. I don't see anything about a USB Bluetooth 4 adapter. There's only this Bluetooth 2+EDR IOGear adapter. You may want to ...

If it really is just that one address and no (or few) others and you really don't know a Davide Farci of Verona (that IP address is part of a small subnet assigned to him, small enough to be a personal network or very small office and we'll get back to that shortly) then you can jump through the hoops of setting up a real firewall (e.g. IPTables), either on ...

On the AirPort or TimeCapsule that is acting as DHCP and/or NAT, placing a period “.” in the Domain Name field will push a null domain name search to its DHCP clients… It does this by making yer DHCP clients’ treat hostnames as fully qualified… That will not disable domain name searches on the DHCP clients if they are configured to use search domains… ...

With your setup of multiple access points sharing the same SSID (network name), your wifi client will use its built-in roaming algorithm to switch. But even if you have a marginal signal (i.e. one bar) on the one that's farther away, most times, the wifi client will stick to that access point, simply because it was the first one configured. To get around ...

If the bridged AE's are 2nd generation, they need to be plugged in via the WAN port, not the LAN ports! I know there are much newer versions for AE, but for those of you that have old AE 2nd gen's sitting in a closet, take them out and use them to create a roaming network, but remember to plug them into the WAN port, not the LAN. However, on the newer AE's, ...

This sounds suspiciously like a hardware fault. If you are in an area with a Genius Bar or an authorized Apple repair centre, I would take the unit in for testing/diagnosis. As these are always-on devices, they should be able to sustain brownouts and outages without issue.

As there is no power switch or external fuse on the airport line of hardware, the absence of any lights when you plug it in means that the hardware is failed. If you have AppleCare on the computer it might cover that airport so definitely check that if you have a covered computer. If not, the repair cost for an airport is generally not much less than a ...

If the USB hub is bus powered (it doesn't have to plug in to a wall socket) then the problem is that your Hard Drives are drawing too much current. USB Standards state that each USB port needs to be able to output 500mA. When you divide that by four (assuming your USB hub is 4-port), you get 125mA, which isn't nearly enough to power two hard drives. I ...

Yep - just configure the express to "Join a network" instead of "extending" it.

Obviously you joined neighbors network once upon a time. Since you have the "Remember networks this computer has joined" Enabled, it will remember it. Find it and delete it in networks - advanced, or just delete both and next time reconnect in the coffee shop, but do not connect to Free WiFi if showing up when at home. The fact that they have the same ...

Open Directory insists that the host name it lives on resolves to that host for both "forward" (e.g. normal) DNS lookups and "reverse" (e.g. PTR record) lookups. If this is not the case, it will insist that the "problem" be fixed or that the host name be changed to one that meets both these criteria. In many cases, the simplest way to make that happen is to ...
